President Obama talks about Iran as if we are still in the stage of
preventing them from initiating violence against the West. Israeli
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told his parliament today that the
battle is already joined.
The missiles fired from Gaza into Israel, that sent millions of
Israelis into bomb shelters, were fired by Islamic Jihad which is
owned and operated by Iran. None of this is in dispute. Even the
Israeli left realizes that an Iranian-sponsored military force
raining missiles down on Tel Aviv is completely untenable.
When Obama and Netanyahu met last week in Washington, the discussion
was about timetables. Obama wanted to reinforce the impression that
he will defend Israel and "have Israel´s back" if and when Israel is
attacked by Iran. But Obama´s timetable was based on the assumption
that Iran hadn´t yet attacked Israel.
Mr. President, Israel has been attacked by Iran, now. Will you change
your timetable? (Copyright 2012 NYP Holdings, Inc. 03/16/12)
